Dream Castle – now Kidz City

1/4/2007 Update:

Maybe it’s hard to notice by some people, since there were always cute cartoons on the windows, but the previous Dream Castle Daycare is now Kidz City. If you have comments about the new place go to their listing here:hoboken411.com/archives/5368

10/2/06 Update:

Check the comments. There was more to this story than initially thought. Seems like Dream Castle may have allowed this to happen. Good to get to the bottom of things finally.

With the growth of new parents in Hoboken, local day care centers are one thing we need more of. Many in town are already filled to capacity with waiting lists approaching one year or longer. Sure, some of the younger people may feel overwhelmed with the sheer number of babies and strollers around town, there is a need nonetheless. Nothing you can do about it.

Get a load of this one. Dream Castle, on 9th and Washington Street is already home for upwards of 25 families along with dozens of others on waiting lists, had their space quickly sold out from under them. They MUST VACATE by October 16th!!

What’s replacing them? An eBay-type drop-off store.

While the owner of the building had every right to do this, it’s just heartless how crass commercialism can overrun a community’s basic needs such as a decent day care center. With the demographics changing in our town, it is a bellwether of the kinds of changes NOT needed and the disgusting turn Washington Street has taken toward nothing useful and all repetition.

These soulless individuals would not even extend Dream Castle ample (or even a few weeks) time to find an alternate space to stem the loss of service to these families.

It is a shame when this kind of thing can happen to something as innocent as a much needed day care center in the name of “progress”. We seemingly face a socially apocalyptic wasteland of Mad Max proportions with no day care or hospitals (when St. Mary goes bye-bye), but an eerily well-groomed populace whose 10 cuticles on their carpal tunnel syndrome hands are as shiny as their latest space age communication devices that have curiously melded to the crook between neck and shoulder.

I just hope they can find an acceptable place to relocate soon.

Please don’t send your kids here. The staff is very rude and really don’t care about the children. This location is small, dirty and too expensive!

I know there are a lack of child care centers in Hoboken, but people this is a bad daycare don’t be fooled.

I, too, have a deposit that I am looking to get back. I spoke with Paula a few months ago and she advised at the time to call her back. Her phone is disconnected. I am having a gard time trying to get through to any listed phone number. Can someone provide me with a working telephone number? Thanks.

Excuse me, I meant to say that Annie HAS NOT returned their deposit. But I guess this must be old news.

A friend of mine who left DreamCastle in November has told me she still has returned their deposit. Anyone else have any luck?
